Ergophobia is the fear of work. I have personal experience with this fear because my ex wife suffered from it. She quit her job the moment we moved in together and then perfected her new skills of holding down the couch and keeping the TV warm. All this time I just thought she was lazy but now I know that she was probably just terrified of working. She isn't the only one either. I know that there are a whole lot of people that just the idea of working a real job gives them waking nightmares and cold sweats.
I get it, work sucks, but being poor sucks a whole lot worse. I need to work because I need money. For one, I like girls and girls like stuff and stuff costs money. Plus, I like to eat and when I get a combo from McDonalds, I'm gonna need to supersize it. Plus, as much as it might be a draw to file disability for my severe and debilitating ergophobia and sit home watching TV all day I'd go nuts with that much free time. Trust me, I love to just crash on the couch and watch television but out of the two hundred channels I have now there is hardly enough on to fill even the little time I do get to watch it. I guess what i'm saying is as lazy as I am, I just can't see myself fully embracing ergophobia.
